BEST OF BOTH WORLDS – THE POLARIS ACE

What do you get when you cross a Polaris Sportsman with a Polaris RZR? An Ace. And not the mealie meal type either. This is cutting edge technology and we loved every second of the new machine…

With the Amid show looming, we fully expected to be introduced to some new stuff in the motorcycle world. We had no clue that we would get to ride this one. The chaps from Polaris SA invited us to come and have a look at something quite special – and they were correct. We vaguely remember seeing something about the Ace a while ago – probably in concept form, but we were not entirely sure whether it had been built or what was happening really. When they rolled this one off the trailer we were pleasantly surprised – we love innovation and new technology.

Kubota RTVs save the day at Namibia Wildlife Resorts’ Dolomite Camp

MEDIA RELEASE FROM SMITH POWER EQUIPMENT (July 2014)

Kubota RTVs save the day at Namibia Wildlife Resorts’ Dolomite Camp

Two Kubota RTV units from Lubbe Motor Group (LMG) in Namibia have saved the day for Namibia Wildlife Resorts’ (NWR) Dolomite Camp in Etosha, Namibia.

LMG MD, Etienne Lubbe, says that the Dolomite camp was previously using well-known traditional golf carts for its internal

transport. “These were unsuitable for the difficult terrain. The Dolomite Camp is situated on extremely steep – up to 40 degree gradients – and rocky ground and the golf carts were simply not designed for such conditions,” says Lubbe. “However Kubota’s heavy-duty, high performance RTV Series utility vehicles have the power and durability to tackle the toughest tasks on a wide variety of terrains and they are just what the doctor ordered.”

Kubota se onderdele en nasorgdiens maak boere se lewe makliker

‘n Nuwe trekker is altyd goeie nuus op ‘n plaas, maar as onderdele nie geredelik beskikbaar is nie, kan dit boere met die hande in die hare laat. “Dit is waarom Smith Power seker maak dat ons onderdelenetwerk soos ‘n geoliede masjien regoor Suid-Afrika funksioneer. Die geheim is goeie kommunikasielyne tussen boere, ons vele handelaars en met Smith Power se hoofkantoor in Johannesburg,” sê Maartin Vermaak, onderdele-aankoper van Smith Power.
